Motion
Play-Station
Asphalt Tango

By Tom Jackson

Published December 19, 2006

Offering considerably more keys and buttons than any game console, the three Pigini accordions wielded by these Polish ex-buskers (and Grand Prix winners at the Krzysztof Penderecki Competition) on their second international release are attacked with all the frenetic energy of a teenager chasing down trolls and mugwumps in some virtual video world. The mission of the Motion is to coax new sounds and styles from their chosen instrument, and while there is something charming about the pipe-organ sounds on “Carrousel,” tricky imitations of computer games and buzzing flies should perhaps be reserved for live shows, where beer can increase listeners’ indulgence. Mercifully, joking and self-conscious displays of technique fall away on “Stars,” a track which foreshadows great things to come. Informed by dance music rather than a pastiche of it, they create something beautiful, and as Janusz Wojtarowicz’ accordion flows like a clarinet, stars twinkle in the sky over that corner of Krakow where the Rynek market square meets Florianska street.
